Very nice place to stay. The rooms are cozy, clean, there is airco and warm water and you have the most amazing view. We can definitely recommend to do the bike tour down hills: it is absolutely gorgeous (also in dry season). The food offered is simple (not too many choices, but certainly enough choice) but very good and also good portion sizes. You would absolutely have to stay in this place just for the view :-) It is hard to get around without a driver/guide, so make sure this is arranged.

We‘ve been there in august and we spend two nights there. The view is fantastic and the bungalows are clean and comfortabel.
I very often read, there is no moskitonet. But to be honest, most of the nets you,ll find in accomodations have holes anyway.
The staff is very friendly, but does not speak a very good english, but it is enough to comunicate. Sumba is a very remote area, so morinda inn is a very comfortabel place to stay. Maybe you should organise a driver ( english speaking) in advance ( at the airport.) because there is no wifi and most of the time no signal for telecomsel as well.
The food is very good.

Room tip: I think the room in the first row have a better view, but they are all fine

We had high expectations for this property given the price. Unfortunately, the only good thing this place has to offer is the incredible view from the bungalow. On arrival we asked to be upgraded to a larger room as the one given to us felt quite small. For an additional cost, we moved to the largest bungalow with the best views. However, the room itself - like all the bungalows - was constructed of very low quality materials and with very little attention to design. There were a series of issues including:

1. The windows could not be opened making the room stuffy and hot
2. There was no mosquito net for the bed despite the location close to a river
3. There was no tea in the room, and the coffee was the nasty pre-sugared, pre-packaged stuff (very disappointing in a country that produces the world's best coffee)
4. There is no wifi and there is no signal for your phone - so no access to Internet all all
5. No one speaks English
6. The menu is not in English
7. The food took a long time to prepare and then arrived cold and was underwhelming
8. A bottle of water was served to two guests with no glasses - we were expected to both drink from the bottle
9. Beer was not cold
10. The toilet seats do not stay up
11. The breakfast was a buffet of entirely Indonesian food - no western options

This list could go on. But perhaps the most shocking thing was the fact that while reading on my bed, a rat pooed on me from above. It was in the rafters above the bed. When I went to the reception to complain, I was told by the manager "it's not our fault". I disagree. When charging USS$50 per night, one should expect that the room at least does not contain rats.

We were moved back to our original room but we were not provided with an apology or anything else for the inconvenience. The manager seemed not to care at all.

I would not recommend this place at all.

- Located on top of a hill, the view from the villa is amazing! Best spot to watch sunrise is just on your porch. And the restaurant is a good place to watch the sunrise. I really love the ambience.
- The location is a little bit remote. In fact, it's just 15 minutes away from the city center and 20 minutes away from the airport
- The staffs are friendly and helpful. Just ask them if you need anything and they will help. Airport transfer is available, you just need to pay for the airport entrance fee (5k rupiah) and give a little tip to the driver.
- They also offer some activities like canoeing and sunrise hiking to the nearby hill
- Extra bed is available for 175k
- They only have 6 rooms so better book it in advance
- There is no phone cell reception here. They got a GSM repeater in receptionist area, but apparently it's working only for Telkomsel and the reception is probably only enough for making a call or sms.

10/10 will stay in Morinda for my next visit to Waingapu.
